    Winter work.

    Reading all this makes me envious..... I miss working on / upgrading my S1 and don't want to start down that slippery slope with the current Elise yet !

    Lotus Sprinting 2019

    Great news Martin, Definitely want to do a few rounds next year..... Who do I contact to register ?
  5. Welcome to MLOC and a that's great looking Elise You have a few options close to the Nottingham area and listed below in no specific order - Central Lotus in Nottingham - Full Lotus dealership and gets good feedback, dealer prices thou. PJS Sports Cars in Burton - Privately owned and an approved Lotus service centre, I've had 1st hand experience and can highly recommend. UNIT 4 in Burton (or better known as Gav's on MLOC) Gets great feedback from the MLOC and wider community. I'm sure others will be along shortly with further input. Andy.

    S2 Exige S vs S3 Elise S/220

    Hello Dan, I've also previously owned an S2 Exige S260 with the 2ZZ engine but currently have an S2/3 Elise S Cup (220) with the 2ZR engine, Both are different mainly down to the power delivery and rev range. The Exige S260 probably has more character and all hell breaks loose when the power band kicks in just below 5K rpm right up to 8K where as the Elise with 220 2ZR has a more linear power delivery from below 3K rpm through to 7K. Which one is better, I'm not sure..... Both have pro's and cons. The power delivery of the Elise is definitely more usable and requires less gear changes on track but as said lacks the character and the explosiveness of the 2ZZ. In regards heat soak, I definitely experienced this 1st hand with the Exige at Le Mans and few years back but had no such issues with the Elise this year at Le Mans in 35c temperatures, This is due to the Elise being charge-cooled. Also, 2ZR has more torque Andy. PS - There's a few of us on track at Donny on 29th Oct, your welcome to a PAX lap in mine and I'm sure there will be a Exige S that someone will be happy to take you out in.

    off to bed..

    I put a front splinter on my S1 that made the car feel more planted at speed and increased the front grip on higher speed corners, I noticed this after it fell off at Oulton, car was definitely a little more skittish. At Le Mans this year I could get much higher speed going through turn 1 (Dunlop curve) in my cup that I could in my S2 Exige, Martin R commented how much more planted the car was compared to his S2. @ndy

    Insurance

    Welcome back I'm with Footman James (previously CCI) however I have used REIS in the past who I personally prefer, both include 6 track days the main reason why they were chosen. If you don't intend then you stick to some of the mainstream companies, Admiral, Aviva etc.
